A team investigates the killing of genetics researchers by their secret laboratory's artificial intelligence, learning it had a good reason to do so.

Quite good, even after its era. It does not show much age except for one monster. This movie headed the resurrection of the zombie movie sub-genre.

Ancient Relic - (2002 movie) image

Entertainment > Movies >

Archaeologists discover an ancient body with impossible technologies, giving evidence of a time-traveling journalist.

Quite a good movie! With a three hour run time, it was an easy binge and one that strings together seamlessly. A great story, and while it has some storytelling moments, it has unforgiving realism for its characters.

It has only a couple of awkward "like it's totes real, yo" moments because of some characters, but thankfully it's well-balanced and is overall absent of religion aside from the major plot point.

A coming of age story of a class of students learning poetry in an unorthodox way.

While I recommend and like this, it not great.

Something about it makes it feel somehow inelegant or simple, perhaps even predictable. Perhaps it stood out in its era, and it caught me at an impressionable moment for my first viewing, but as I watch it again it doesn't grab me much at all. I think this would be weakly-mandatory for creating a well-rounded movie-learning experience in someone young.

College kids go on vacation out into the woods, and everything goes horribly wrong when misunderstandings spiral out of reason.

A great movie with a great tone. Really fun to watch, but, as with most of its peers, it's great for just the one watch.

I really liked this one, and I'll take notes when I re-watch it.
